    My roosters 11 months old (late bloomer) And My eggs "fertile-ness" is like 2/6 were fertile. I was worried. And Today I reconized how hard he would try to "Be excessful" like 5 attemps *note:that I saw of *

    Tell its 8:00 pm at night , and I had to put medicine on a few of my hens comb because their frost bit. And I went to grab a hen and she flattend her back (My rooster saw her do this!) I grabbed her and started to put her medicine on, And my rooster goes into the back of the coop, and all I could hear was my rooster clucking and doing a slide movement... So I ran back there to see what was going on, and he was mating my Red sex-link! and was excessful... I guess when my barred rock hen flattend her back it gave him an idea.

    Weird enough I think that made my day [​IMG] haha. Makes me feel better knowing then I go to put eggs in the bator from my coop, atleast a few will be fertile.. [​IMG] Hopefully My eggs "fertile-ness" will go up [​IMG]
